Family overwhelmed by Enumclaw community support | Letter
Our family was overwhelmed by Enumclaw’s support at our Adoption Benefit Garage and Bake Sale. There were over 50 families who donated items for the garage sale, over 20 people who helped throughout the sale, 4 precious high school girls who volunteered their time to watch our kiddos and hundreds of generous people who came to the sale and bought items, pies, cinnamon rolls and other baked goods or just donated to the adoption. God truly is “able to do immeasurably more than what we could ever ask or imagine.” We are so thankful and can’t wait to tell our little one the amazing story of how much he or she is wanted not just by our family, but by our extended family, church family, friends, coworkers and community. Thanks for being part of our journey and for helping us bring our “Little One”home.
